Earlier tonight, after a great dinner at Barbarini Alimentari, some friends from the old NYU Newman Club gang and I checked out "The New York City Waterfalls."
It's a grand scale public art project of four man-made waterfalls rising from East River and the New York Harbor. We saw them from Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport.
Today was the first day for the waterfalls, which will flow through October.
Our favorite (and, frankly, the one we had the best view of) was the waterfall under the Brooklyn Bridge (pictured above).
